Sandhill House is the perfect countryside retreat to escape to and enjoy exclusive B&B accommodation in the heart of the breathtaking Tamar Valley. Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and World Heritage Site, this luxury B&B Cornwall is the ideal gateway to explore the fantastic natural environment of the Tamar Valley and its world changing heritage, Dartmoor National Park, Bodmin Moor and the historic Naval city of Plymouth. In addition Sir Francis Drake's hometown, Tavistock, is less 10 minutes drive and both the rugged north and sandy south coasts being just 30 - 40 minutes away. It is also ideal for exploring National Trust and Royal Horticultural properties, or for business if you prefer to avoid the big hotel chains.

New on the market, Sandhill House and the self-catering Tamar Orchard Barn are exclusive but relaxed retreats. The elegant and enchanting Grade II Listed Georgian home was originally the great mine owner, John Williams', 'Manor'. It has recently under-gone refurbishment with facilities including king size beds, beautifully appointed en-suites, free wifi, and Freeview TV/DVD and hospitality trays. There is a breakfast menu choice, offering the best ethically and locally sourced produce, served in the Georgian dining room.

The Tamar Orchard Barn, set in the 2 acre gardens, is dog friendly, offering total seclusion with a private, south facing garden.

With public transport, including the Tamar Valley Railway Line, at the end of the carriage drive, Sandhill House is the perfect place for walkers and cyclists and for those wishing to walk to the local pub! St Mellion Golf Club is just 20 minutes away. Other local activities include tree-surfing and canoeing on the beautiful Tamar River. Please see our Blog, 'Once Upon a Time' for local events.

Guests are welcome to relax in the tranquil, horticultural ‘treasure trove’ gardens. We regret that extensive ornamental ponds make Sandhill unsuitable for children.
Environmental Statement
Sandhill House’s Carbon Footprint when built 550 years ago would have been very small indeed, with heat, light, and all food being produced locally. We realise we cannot achieve such a small footprint in the 21st Century but what we can do is minimise our impact, both locally and globally, on this world so that we can enjoy it today but also future generations will benefit from the well-being created by our beautiful surroundings. In order to reduce our impact and our guests at Sandhill House B&B and the self-catering Tamar Orchard Barn we have implemented the following: • Sandhill House is a member of CoaST Cornwall Sustainable Tourism One Planet Tourism Project www.coastproject.co.uk • We comply with environmental legislation and approved codes of practice including the Countryside Code • We support local food producers, restaurants, pubs and tourist attractions, along with shops and transport. We believe in buying locally wherever possible to reduce packaging and road m
